Trump's drug hook-up, Dr. Bornstein died


?s=20


Harold Bornstein, the doctor who said Donald Trump was in excellent shape and was mocked for it, died last Friday at age 73.

His paid obit is running in the Legacy section of the New York Times.

I am gobsmacked. Harold was my doctor in the 80s and early 90s. His father, the late Dr. Jacob Bornstein, was the cousin of a friend of mine. Harold, who loved dispensing medication over the phone, never mentioned that Trump was his patient. But when Trump became president– and his health was questioned– Harold, looking more eccentric than ever, chimed in.

He wrote a letter stating: “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” (The letter is below.)

He later told CNN: “He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter. I just made it up as I went along.”

Around that time, in 2017, Harold claimed his office had been raided by Trump via a bodyguard. Trump lawyer, and long time associate. It was prompted by an article in the New York Times in which Bornstein said the president takes a prostate-related drug to treat baldness, known as Propecia, as well as other “antibiotics to control rosacea, a common skin problem, and a statin for elevated blood cholesterol and lipids.”

1. Another man of courage and conviction: "He dictated that whole letter. I didn't write that letter.

I just made it up as I went along."
